    Have you seen it?

    According to the laws of physics and the principles of nature, nothing disappears into thin air, so it must be around here
    somewhere. It was too big and loud to fall between the couch cushions or hide in the closet, so someone must have stolen it. Someone must have found a way to silence it. I know there were a lot of people who wished it would evaporate into the ether or slowly fizzle out, but I’m sure it can’t be all gone.

    What happened to Black Lives Matter?

    Sometimes it's not a bad idea to get off the grid, maybe go underground. Of anyone, Black people have learned that.

    Good point, Queenie! It is counter-productive when your enemy knows your every move in advance and announces it on the nightly news. That is how a lot of plans get sabotaged.

    I hope you're right.

    Same thing that happened to every other so-called "movement" that included "black" in the title. The shaky foundation upon which it was erected finally gave way to gravity.

    Nothing of lasting value can be built atop a Slaver's definition of marketable product.. the contradictions inherent in the definition invariably seep into the core, fatally weakening the structure until it finally falls in on itself.

    Black Lives Matter was finished as soon as they gave the movement a title. Because then, they could be co-opted, manipulated, infiltrated, demonized, ostracized, terrorized, penalized, brutalized, etc.

    The truth is, real and lasting change is nameless and leaderless and moves among the shadows. It does not appear in televised debates. Real Change is A Result of work, not a political slogan discussed, debated and denigrated.

    ..context is everything.

    Nothing happened to it, except for the fact that they are being bombarded by two enemies.....white racists and by bougie coons within the black community, who are the eyes and ears of the white racist from outside the community....

    Bougies parrot the same bs talking points that white racists have attacked Black Lives Matter with, through pseudo feigned care for "All Lives", when the real issue was that somebody had the heart to put black life in the spotlight as important and out came white people with their insecure racist *** and the "yes massa" negroes who make it their everyday lives not to hurt the white man's feelings...thats what happened to it.it now has to tread lightly...Imagine that....an organization that is simply putting the spotlight on the injustices "Black Life" faces in everyday life, having to tread :lightly" and work in "secret" because its getting attacked by not only whites, but by ignorant negroes who are afraid of losing their white bed partners and starbucks pass.........even in this thread you have one parroting the same talking points of whites......ashame

    hey.. you can't activate the 'either / or".. "black / White" .. "us / them" mentality without some polarizing entity. The media coverage of BLM served it's purpose.. Trump is firmly in office & the right has a firm hold on both the house and senate. Mission accomplished.

    A simple word like "Too" would have hindered all of the "All lives matter" mess from getting traction. Yes, everyone with a bit of common sense understands the "Too" is implied, but we have to remember that probably less than 50% of the population possess common sense. So sometimes things have to be explicitly spelled out for those who are a bit slower on the uptake, and to hinder those who are willing to take advantage of people's ignorance.

    Trump is not firmly in office as his supporters love to misthink. Trump think in alternative realities.
    The reality is, those of us who think for ourselves, recognize trump is a lier, cheater and possible a traitor. Personally, I think he's in early stages of alzheimer's.
    My vote was for a mentally stable leader.
    Not a mentally challenged Traitor.
    Taking bets all over the world on how long before he's kicked out of the Whitehouse.

    Trump impeached? You can bet on it

    The prospect that the president won't make it through his term is big business for bookmakers.

    There’s already talk of impeachment, just three weeks into Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency. In fact, many are already betting on it.

    Gambling houses all over the world are taking in action on whether Trump, inaugurated just last month, will resign or be impeached. And the odds aren’t as long as you might think.
